EJB 3.0 : comparing exams

I've read often that "EJB 3.0 is much easier to learn and use than was EJB 2.1". Does this mean that a future SCBCD will be easier than the one we have now ? Or do you think that there's also lots of new api to learn (ejbs+jpa), meaning than a new SCBCD wouldn't be that easy ?

If a subject seems easier that just means the questions will be deeper or go into even smaller more obscure detail than then ones in the old exam.
And maybe the passing score might be upped as well

I remember my college days where it was tough to score in 'easy' subjects.

I mean that if a technology is difficuly to grasp, an exam should also be difficult. Not because of the content of the exam itself, but because the technology it refers to is difficult. We may say that Ejb2.X is quite a beast.
So by saying "Ejb3.0 will make your life easier", I was wondering if SCBCD will also get easier as well.

EJB3.0 provides ease of development and removes the redundant things. For example, if life cycle callbacks needed, use only the part needed etc. So it is easier to learn. However, if compared with previous versions, the underlying concepts are almost same except Entities(POJO Based persistence). So though easy to learn, one may easily fall in exam trap if any exam is offered.

Anyway, I tried some of it and felt very easy due to the fact EJB3 can be mapped in mind very easily. At long last ....
